Remembering our Fallen Heroes

4th of July is such a great time to celebrate our FREEDOM and all of the liberties that we have as U.S. citizens.  And it also a time to remember the cost of building and maintaining our freedom.  That's why Dream of a Better World wants to make a difference by supporting our troops, and especially those that have given their all for our freedom.

July 4th Gift Baskets for Troops!
Since 9/11, there have been 6,701 U.S. soldiers killed in action and we want to help remember each and every one of them.  So we have set a goal to purchase a FLAG for every fallen soldier killed in action since 9/11.  On September 7, 2013 the "Hero & Remembrance Run" will take place on Ford Island and  there will be a pair of boots and a personal photo of each soldier as a memorial.  We are honored to help place an American flag in each one of those boots as part of this memorial.

Our good friend Lance Corporal David James "DJ" Richvalsky was injured in Afghanistan and has helped us to understand how important it is to remember those that gave their lives in combat for our freedoms.  In remembering his own experience in combat, DJ told us that he would "give his own life to bring back those heroes" fighting along side of him who gave their all.  "Since we can't bring them back, it's important to remember the total sacrifice that they made."  The "Hero and Remembrance Run," sometimes called "Boots on the Bridge," is an incredible visual reminder which Dream of a Better World is proud to be a part of.

If you'd like to remember our heroes and support our troops, please come out on September 7th and join in the run.  And, if you'd like to help us supply those flags, please DONATE NOW by clicking on our "SUPPORT OUR TROOPS" donate button above and to the right OR the link below.

Thank You and a very Happy 4th of July!
